  • Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, said he and Kim Kardashian West wouldn't go "full Will and Jada."

  • He was referencing Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, who have been candid about their marriage.

  • Kardashian West filed for divorce in February 2021, later filing a request to be "legally single."

The rapper Ye, previously known as Kanye West, said that he and Kim Kardashian West won't go "full Will and Jada" in sharing the details of their relationship amid the pair's ongoing divorce.

In an interview with Hollywood Unlocked, Ye spoke about his divorce, saying that he now himself back from tweeting about his relationship with Kardashian West in a desire to not overshare "problems on both sides" that "don't need to be aired out" publicly.

"We ain't trying to go no full, you know, all respect dude, I gotta use these names as an example," Ye told Hollywood Unlocked. "My biggest thing is when I be on my Ye about to tweet, I don't tweet anymore. I be like, 'We not going full Will and Jada.'"

In doing so, he compared himself and his ex to Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, who have been famously candid when speaking publicly about their relationship.

Smith appeared on his wife's Facebook Watch series, "Red Table Talk," in the past to discuss their marriage, but later said that he stopped watching the show because "they telling all our business." Smith himself spoke openly about their marriage in his self-titled memoir, as Insider previously reported.

In the Hollywood Unlocked interview, Ye alleged that he wasn't allowed to enter Kardashian West's home with his children. He and Kardashian West have four children together — North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm — and Ye told Hollywood Unlocked that he's "still gonna be the best dad" to them despite the split.

Ye also accused Kardashian West of trying to "antagonize" him or "create this crazy narrative" by allowing North West to wear lipstick on TikTok, where North and Kardashian West share an account.

A representative for Kardashian West didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

On January 15, before the Hollywood Unlocked interview was released, People reported that, according to an unnamed source, Kardashian West was unhappy with the comments that Ye made during the interview, which she reportedly knew about ahead of time. According to the source, Kardashian West wants their children to have a "strong relationship with both parents" and for Ye to "respect the boundaries and structure she has put in place."

Kardashian West filed for divorce from West in February 2021 after seven years of marriage, later filing a request to be "legally single" and to restore her birth name in December 2021. Per court documents, Kardashian West requested the change after Ye allegedly ignored her divorce filing, Insider previously reported.

At a concert in December, Ye asked Kardashian West, who is reportedly dating "SNL" star Pete Davidson, to "run right back to me," Insider previously reported. As of January, Ye is currently dating "Uncut Gems" actor Julia Fox.
